So I ordered my xboxOne from newegg. Got the package with a year of gold, ryse, ghosts, bf4 and another controller.

So my question is did you guys pay tax of any kind?

Mine had no tax so it was saving me money versus buying them all from a retail store. Just a heads up if you still want to get one. They have some bundles in stock still.

Bump. I'm thinking it didn't have tax due to not being an actual store, just online. Dunno? Does amazon tax products?

Sometimes there's tax and sometimes there isn't. If it's untaxed, however, I do believe you're supposed to report that on your state and potentially federal taxes.

Weird. I will talk to my banker today. I was expecting tax but it came out to 0.00$.

Now I'm scared. They said it was shipped and I'm tracking it. If I get in some sort of trouble I will plead ignorance.

Ignorance doesn't usually work as a defense and you should definitely talk to someone other than a banker about tax related issues. For instance a tax specialist... Anyway, you're not going to get in trouble. This purchase would be reported on the taxes that you'll file next year. Assuming you live in the states, that is.

Sales tax is a state item, not a federal one, and is only required under certain conditions. I can't recall specifically, but I believe it has something to do with where the physical locations of the online retailer and/or their distribution houses are located.

Bottom line, currently not all online retailers are required to charge sales tax (but that is something that some states are trying to get changed).

Enjoy your savings!

I own a XBOne, PS3, XBOX360, and Wii. I'm in it for the gameplay, not the logo on the box. Can you say the same?

Before Amazon started collecting CA state tax I never reported my purchases on my tax returns, honestly because at the time (before all the rumors of them starting that practice heated up and I learned this) I did not know you were supposed to. That's also not saying I would have, as I probably would still have ignored that (due to laziness of going back through all my purchases and honestly the "savings"). This included a $2k tv I purchased. Nothing ever came up.

The right thing to do is what Sniper says, and he's right that ignorance is not usually a good defense, but you're probably ok if you don't.

I wouldn't worry too much about not paying tax on ONE single purchase. Now if you do a crap load then yeah..
